cyradm, setquota and none

I have cyrus 2.2.3 and the cyradm man page says that one can use

  cyradm user.username STORAGE none

to remove a quota.

When I try this I get the error:

  setquota: STORAGE: none: not a number

In searching for information about this I saw reference to using "-1" instead of 
"none", but that gave the same result: "nat a number".  I then found an example 
which just used

  cyradm user.username

I found that did not fail, rather is set the quota to -1 in the quota file.  i.e. it 
did not, strictly speeking, remove the quota.

Can one actually remove a quota, and why is the man page for cyradm wrong?
